Anth 115 – Emerging Global Culture Citations and References * How and Where to Use Citations Citations are used within the text to help identify and give credit for the work of other authors. Anthropologists tend to use citations instead of using end or footnotes. When citing text in your paper, there are several rules that you should follow: 1. Citations should be placed as close as possible to the idea or information being used, but should not break the flow of the paper. The best way to do this is to place the citation at the end of a sentence rather than the middle. 2. Citations at the end of the sentence come before the final punctuation. For example: “…where the beaches are difficult to excavate (Zimmerman 1994:54).”[Zimmerman is the author’s last name, 1994 is the date of publication, and 54 is the page number from which the idea or quote comes.] 3. When citing an author in the text use: the author’s last name, the year of publication, and the page number (in parentheses). For example:
